The news reported 20,000 lightning strikes during this storm ! I would believe it !
I woke up late and nearly missed the chance to capture this event but luckily I was able to grab my gear and slide out the door just in time.
I was onsite at 0300 hours at the Lancelin lookout but quickly understood I would have a very short window of opportunity to grab a shot.
Rising winds, rain and bleary early morning eyes fought against me but luckily I grabbed a few shots, including cray boats heading out for their days work.
There is something addictive about storm photography. Living on the coast in Albany means I don’t see many storms with lightning so it’s a real treat to see action it’s like this.
Hope you love the image!
